    It has come to light that Republicans both running for office, and some who already held office, were funded by White supremacists.  The Republican Party has spent almost a decade attacking America's first African-American President, as well as minority groups.  Now it's clear that the Republican Party not only panders to racist Conservatives in the U.S., but it is actually funded by racists. READ THE FULL STORY

  • Don’t #AskRachel — She Checked Out Long Ago

    29 Jun 2015 | 7:00 am
    By Guest Contributor Dorothy Attakora-Gyan First things first…wait! I probably shouldn’t open a piece on Rachel Dolezal with the only Iggy Azalea lyric I know. Goodness, let’s try this again. I advocate letting folks self- identify how they want to—ethically. Rachel Dolezal it seems, has not self- identified ethically and it is fair to hold her accountable and ask her to do better. A few weeks ago, I presented at a conference in New Orleans. During my visit to that magical city, I had the honour of meeting a French researcher with whom I quickly connected, and remain in touch with…
  • Watch It Again: President Obama’s Eulogy For Clementa Pinckney

The Bible calls us to hope, to persevere and have faith in things not seen. They were still living by faith when they died, the scripture tells us. They did not receive the things promised. They only saw them and welcomed them from a distance, admitting that they were foreigners and strangers on earth. We are here today to remember a man of God who lived by faith, a man who believed in things not…

  • Web of Spider-Men: Will Marvel Use Miles Morales To Stick It To Sony?

    Arturo
    24 Jun 2015 | 5:00 am
    By Arturo R. García As of Wednesday morning, the mantle of Spider-Man has changed hands in both the comic-book and movie realms. And while Marvel Comics scored a win on the diversity front, it’s fair to wonder if the move could pay dividends in another realm. Because while it’s notable enough to see Miles Morales, the Black Latino character introduced in an alternate comics universe nearly four years ago, named as the protagonist in Marvel’s new Spider-Man title, it will be particularly interesting to see how the company handles both him and his predecessor, Peter Parker,…

  • "I Pledge Allegiance...": The Confederate Flag, Continued

    jazzy
    30 Jun 2015 | 6:10 am
    On Sunday, I laid out part of my thoughts concerning the Confederate flag. And most of that most was at some racist fuck, so instead of talking at someone, I wanted to talk TO someone. The Confederate flag that is flown today is definitely not the original flag that was flown, regardless of how one tries to spin it. I’ve read some books (one I’ll actually give an independent review on, because… lawdy), and despite all the people trying to put the modern day Confederate flag in a brand new light and saying it’s representative of the old Southern heritage, you cannot.

    Though it has been many years since I last opened its cover, Brother to a Dragonfly remains one of my favorite books. I think I read it in seminary or shortly thereafter. I do not recall who recommended it to me. It is a profound book, full of wonderful stories and deep wisdom, written by a remarkable Baptist preacher, the late Will D. Campbell. Campbell grew up in the deep South, was ordained a Baptist minister at the age of 17, served as a medic during World War II, after which he attended Wake Forest College and the Yale Divinity School. In the  mid-1950s he became active in the Civil…

  • Jeb Bush: Latinos’ Candidate?

    José Cobas
    29 Jun 2015 | 5:31 pm
    TweetJeb Bush finally announced his candidacy for President of the United States as a Republican. According to a reporter, Jeb portrays himself as [A]n executive animated by big ideas and uniquely capable of carrying them out, pointing to his record in Florida of introducing a taxpayer-financed school voucher program, expanding charter schools, reducing the size of the state government by thousands of workers and cutting taxes by billions. He also portrays himself as near-Latino. One of Bush’s campaign major strategies is the pursuit of the Latino vote. It centers on Bush’s claim to…

    TweetViewing the narrated event of Charleston within the dark and secure confines that surrounded me under a waxing crescent moon, created a nauseating pit within the center of my chest. As the news began to sift in, the sensation proceeded to raise the minuscule fine hairs upon the back of my petered-out neck. Knowing nothing in particular about the city, beyond the fact that it was not on my bucket list of places to visit, seeing the old and famous AME church and Charleston, South Carolina police lights splashed across my high-definition screen created a sense of confounding distress and…

    TweetWhen I first heard there was a shooting in Charleston and that a white man was the main suspect in killing nine people in a historic black church, I knew, like too many of us, that this had everything to do with race. When I saw photos of him with a disaffected stare and wearing a jacket with patches of the flags of segregated Rhodesia and apartheid South Africa, I knew immediately he was connected in some way to the white nationalist movement. And when I heard the statement he made about rape and take-over, I was pretty sure I knew where Roof had been spending time online. The shooter,…
  • Understanding the Charleston Shooting from a Sociological Perspective

    TweetThe shooting at a historic black church in Charleston, South Carolina, on Wednesday has shaken the country, leaving many reflecting on the state of race relations in the United States. Nine people, including Rev. Clementa Pinckney, the church’s pastor and a South Carolina state senator, were shot to death by accused gunman Dylann Storm Roof at Emanuel African Methodist Episcopal Church. Authorities have called the shooting a hate crime. But how does one explain such a crime from a scientific perspective? What could lead someone to commit a racially motivated hate crime? What is…

    Advocates for the rights of immigrants will never forget June 12 2005! It was on that beautiful Sunday afternoon, over 1,000 residents stood in solidarity with Danbury's immigrant population and stood against the anti-immigrant/racist policies of Mark Boughton, his chief of staff (and architect of many of the city's anti-immigrant policies) Mike McLachlan, and their extremists admirers within the city's nativist movement. Here's a small sample of the how the march was reported in the press.Hartford Courant:Angered and energized by Mayor Mark Boughton's call for tougher enforcement of…

     People standing up for the racist symbol known as the Confederate flag. I see Caucasians supporting this historical symbol of slavery and racism with the weak excuse that it's just a flag, or part of Southern history. Firstly, it's the flag of rebellion against the United States. The South lost the Civil War, and were on the wrong side of history in building a system of rape, torture and murder of Black people. Secondly, is the Nazi flag just a flag to Jewish people???? What self respecting Jew would support raising a swastika on government land funded by tax dollars! Lastly so…
